COMMENTS
Given A131385(n) = Product_{k=1..n} floor((n+k)/k), then limit A131385(n+1)/A131385(n) = exp(c), where c = this constant. - Paul D. Hanna, Nov 26 2012
Closely related to A085361 (the exponent in the definition of A085291). - Yuriy Sibirmovsky, Sep 04 2016

FORMULA
Equals Sum_{s>=1} (-1)^(s+1)*zeta(s+1)/s.
Equals Sum_{k>=1} -zeta'(1 + k), where Zeta' is the derivative of the Riemann zeta function. - Vladimir Reshetnikov, Dec 28 2008
Equals Sum_{s>=1} log(1+1/s)/s. - Jean-François Alcover, Mar 26 2013
Equals Integral_{t=0..1} H(t)/t dt. Compare to A001620 = Integral_{t=0..1} H(t) dt. Where H(t) are generalized harmonic numbers. - Yuriy Sibirmovsky, Sep 04 2016
Equals lim_{n->oo} log(d(n!))*log(n)/n, where d(n) is the number of divisors of n (A000005) (Erdős et al., 1996). - Amiram Eldar, Nov 07 2020
